not really, I have been in tons of forums that there is a limit to how little you can post. This rule is a general rule across a ton of message boards. Like i said befomre, it is to help cut down worthless spam and increase the general outlook of thsi forums to make it at least seem more intelligent. Its all for the overall good of this site as the more intelligent the conversations the more people will join with the frame of mind that this is a mature site and not a site ran by a bunch of raging idiot fanboys.
As for Weezy, he didnt get his head chopped off just due to spamming, when he posted in DK's original thread about this, I gave him a warning just less then a day before about something else (have to look at my PMs to remember) so that warning on top of what would have been a warning about something he should logically have known about was just stacked on top of each other to equal out grounds for punishment. As for the length please check my comment on his profile on why it was 4 days instead of the 2 days I banned him for.
One last thing, for the rule not being on the rules page yet. Look, ioi has been working for the last few days on getting the predictions league up, and is planning on launching a few other features that you guys should enjoy. So take the ruling as an unwritten rule for right now as ioi has way more important things to do then hear people complaining about minor issues like this unless you don't want this week's numbers? I can always suggest him take a two week's vacation because he does deserve it.
oh not the "because theyre doing it, were doing it too" argument.
VG was fine without the spam rule, you dont need a quota for each post for it not to be considered spam.
can i ask you a question?
from the time youve spent frequenting this site, did you really feel that VG had a serious spam problem?
can you honestly say that VG didnt have intelligent conversations, before the spam rule was enforced?
IMO VG has the most intelligent posters in any site related to gaming i have ever known. i like the community and i joined this community without the frame of mind that this site is ran by a bunch raging idiot fanboys(dont really know how a spam rule can change the "this site is ran by a bunch raging idiot fanboys" problem- if there really is one.)
if anything this just proves how out of touch the higher ups are with the community they built...
